    Talking Passed the MoT! Woooo

    So, thanks to the GDP of a small country my Stinky is now road legal again. Just ready to go on sale. Gonna keep tarting up the rust spots, (was always the summer plan) to make her a bit more appealing and less peally. What do you reckon... 1200? If I'm lucky...

    The missus dad is offering me his....wait for it..... Ford Mondeo! It's a 2.0i (146bhp ver) GhiaX estate in silver (I can keep the same polish!!!) for 1500.

    Yup, a walk on the dark side I agree but it's minted with more whistles and bells than an old timey fun fair. Even if I keep it for a year there should be less to spend than trying to keep the audi on the road .

    I've got some bit's and pieces lying around that I'll put in the classifieds but I'm not gone yet. Still got a rear wiper to sort and an aircon hose to replace.

    Aye, it's a 51. Looking forward to driving a slightly newer generation of car and I so wish I was getting a B6 audi or equivalent VAG car but it's not to be, (for now at least). I'd keep her Byzan, I really would but the missus just wants rid of it now and as cash is a premium I can't argue. I will have an Audi again, maybe be a bit more selective in my choice but I'm hooked. Even seeing the guys at the garage driving her back from the brake test I though it still looks a damn fine car...
    Good luck with the MoT mikey,

    Don't want to put a downer on it but you won't get anywhere near 1k with the mileage you have.

    People often say "that cars been to the moon mate"...

    Well you can now officially say your car has been to the moon and is on its way back.

    The centre to centre distance from the earth to the moon is ~238k miles. The distance from the centre to the surface is ~5k miles combined, so thats 233k from the surface of earth to the surface of the moon.

    So you've got there and are nearly 5% of the way back :P

    Yup, I wonder if I can use that as a selling point? Could get a private reg N4SAA . I'm going to put a very cheeky reserve of 1000 on it. If I get it, bonus, if not, then I may just go the highest bidder. I mean, tbh, it's still a good solid car with albeit a slightly ;o) highish mileage. Just circumstances dictate that it's got to go :O(. I will be back rasA4 once I shrug the Mondeo (if I go for it - heard some worrying things about the intacke manifolds dropping their gutts into the engine) shrowd!
